Employee Spotlight:
Lee Hillerich

Meet Lee Hillerich. Our resident Star Wars enthusiast, concert buff and class clown has been our director of client services for almost 3 years, entertaining us through all of them. When this Louisvillian isn’t working with clients to get their ideas turned from sketch to reality, he’s busy keeping up with his two young daughters and baby boy.

What did you want to be when you were 10?
A Transformer. (We’re not quite sure why that one fell through)

What do your kids think you do now?
Take care of a fish…they’re not entirely wrong. We actually do have a pet beta fish that we picked up at the Aquatic Experience trade show with our clients from Aqueon. They helped us pick the fish and set us up with an aquarium, and amazingly we’ve kept it alive to this day!

What’s the least used app on your phone?
The Numbers App. (Lee is an “idea” guy – not a “spreadsheet” guy)

You’ve worked with bigger agencies in the past. Big vs. small – what are the biggest differences?
In a smaller agency like Celtic, the biggest differences I see are in the way we work with clients and with each other. Here, I think we’re able to do a deeper dive with clients going into projects. Because we work so closely with them, we have a better understanding of exactly what they need. When it comes to our internal side of the operation, it’s all hands on deck rather than splitting up into teams to tackle a project.

What are you currently binge watching?
Breaking Bad – I know, I’m a little late to the game.
